Working with local businesses: The Little Carousel

 — The Little Carousel  – Boutique event styling and hire – Christchurch —

 

The Little Carousel is a boutique event styling and hire business, which specialises in Children’s birthday parties,
Baby showers and Weddings. This year, they have also built an extension to their business called Little Slumber parties.
They are based in the lovely town of Christchurch, South Island.

Creative owner and stylist Jen, established her love for parties, and all the planning and styling that comes with it.
As a trained teacher, and mother of 3, there’s no doubt she’s had her fair share of organising parties and planning activities.

 From hiring out table and chairs, to lighting, decor, and even a DONUT WALL! These guys do it all.
You can purchase a party box, with all the essential party basics, right down to hiring Jen to style the entire event for you.

The Little Carousel

Her eye for detail, ensures that your event runs smoothly and stress free.
If you wish to hire her styling talent, then she offers an amazing process, right from the start,
she sends out a mood board to you, and discusses your requirements, to ensure she knows exactly what you want.

Jen approached us to create some custom floral decor pieces for her, which we are were super thrilled about.
We designed and created a floral chandelier and floral curtain (or floral backdrop as some may call it).
These floral curtains can be used as a backdrop for a birthday, event, or photoshoot.

The ONLY felt florist in New Zealand!

The ONLY felt florist in New Zealand!

That’s right, this is the only Felt Florist in New Zealand! It’s really all in the title, honestly.
As we are mid way through 2017, I am still the only florist in New Zealand, creating
gift bouquets, arrangements, weddings flowers and catering to
corporate clients and the film industry, with felt flowers.

Amongst all the other florists out there, whether it is fresh flowers, silk flowers, paper flowers,
foam or flax flowers, I am the only florist in New Zealand working with felt.
At this point in time, it makes our flowers truly and incredibly unique!


New Zealand florist

I’m not here to bag all the other types of florists out there. In fact, if you already follow me,
you will know I have a very good friend Sema, who is a Flax florist at Hapene by Artiflax.
I often purchase hapene from her, to use in my bouquets and arrangements,
as I do like to incorporate different media into my creations.

I am simply here to say that if none of the other types of fresh or fake flowers take you fancy,
I offer an alternative to other artificial flowers. Because let’s face it, just like food,
everyone has different taste buds!


Whenever I introduce myself, and my business, the most common question is
“How did you get into felt flowers?” 
Well, in all honesty, I don’t really remember.
It seems to have just…well, happened! I don’t even remember the exact date! 

And when it did, I must have phased out my old work (with felt) pretty quickly,
because I barely remember that either.  
All I know was that I loved making flowers.
There was a whole different creative side to it that intriguied me.

Getting requests to make a certain flower challenged me. And I loved that aspect to it!

If this is your first time visiting my website, why not check out my portfolio,
and get your wallet ready to purchase all of my beautiful flowers in the shop!

It has been a very exciting journey so far, and each new day brings new adventure. 
I can’t wait to show everyone what else I can create!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far.

As I continue to build my portfolio, I would love to know what other flowers
you would love to see me make.

stay tuned on my Facebook and Instagram pages.
I may just make your flower in the near future!
